My wife and I arrived mid-week for a 4 night business stay. Only 3 cars in the lot, not busy. A sign on the office directs me to room 8 where the owner [?] lives. I follow him to the office where he spends an actual 20 minutes trying to run first my driver's license and then my credit card thru the card machine.
He's constantly on the cell phone yelling at someone. Whether it's related to the credit card or not i don't know and there is no explanation for the ''confusion''.
My wife finally taps on the door wondering what's taking so long. I have no answer for her.
I tell the man we are there for 4 nights and he can try the card tomorrow. Finally he writes the numbers down and we have one room key.
The room is actually ok. Old carpet and the occasional bug in the bathroom, but we were ok with that for the price. The beds were firm and the water pressure was good. the heater was quiet, but the temperature fluctuated thru the night.
There were 4 threadbare towels. One had been used to clean up a spill and was returned to the towel bar under a clean one. I didn't tell my wife about that incident.
Ok, it's late. Tomorrow will be better. We left at 7 AM and returned late that evening. The room was as we left it. No service. No clean towels. Nothing. My wife obtained clean towels from room 8.
Day two and three were the same. Having full workday schedules and not wanting to try to bridge the cultural barrier, we just adapted to the oddity of it all.
One final treat was the toilet backing up. No spill, but I went for a plunger just in case. I followed the owner to the office. No plunger. He took an extra 5 minutes to arrange a group of keys and remotes--easier than walking back from room 8 a second time, I guess. We then went to the boiler room where he finally located the plunger beside the hot water tank.
He motioned me forward and pointed to it, not wanting to pick it up himself. I guess it was dirty.
So, if you want a cheap ok room with crude staff and absolutely no service this is the place. Cash recommended.
